Geothermal heating and cooling works by utilizing underground temperatures. Typically, the ground beneath our feet is warmer than the outside air during the winter and cooler in the summer. In fact, ground temperatures are approximately a constant 55 degrees no matter the weather or season. Geothermal systems consist of small pipes placed underground that allow heat to be transferred to and from your home.
The EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy consider geothermal systems to be the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool a home and should be recognized as a viable option for many businesses. Geothermal systems do not emit carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, or other greenhouse gasses. In addition to not contributing to air quality pollution, geothermal systems' low demand for electricity helps to reduce peak grid demand, as well as the need for additional electricity generating plants.
